Admin History/Bio
In 1914, a building was bought on Fifth Street in Crowland and converted into a synagogue, dedicated in 1917. A shochet was retained when available, a mikvah was erected adjacent to the Shul, and a plot of land for a cemetery was obtained. By 1942, there were only a handful of Jews still living in Crowland so the old synagogue was sold and the Italian-Canadian Club on Garner Avenue in Welland was purchased.
Scope and Content
This item is a photograph of the interior of the Anshei Yosher Congregation in Welland, Ontario. The photograph features the bimah and the ark.

Scope and Content
This accession consists of 22 photographs taken by the prominent architectural photographer, Robert Burley. They document the interior and exterior features of six of Toronto's original synagogues, including: the Kiever, Knesseth Israel, the First Narayever, Anshei Minsk, Shaarei Tzedec and the Beach Hebrew Institute.
These photographs were part of an exhibit held at the Arthur Anderson Gallery, that ran from February to May 2005. Burley selected these synagogues for his project because they were the only synagogues in the city still operating in their original buildings. His images reveal the architectural details of the buildings as well as the rich interiors, highlighting the murals, religious artifacts and interior structure of each building.
Administrative History
Robert Burley graduated with a Masters degree in Fine Arts from the School of Art Institute in Chicago in 1986. He is an accomplished architectural photographer who has exhibited his work around the world. He is a professor at the School of Image Arts at Ryerson University.
